RFB (VNC) is quite popular in Squeak and may do what you want.

I haven't used Nebraksa, but as far as I can tell it solves the
distribution problem for you - if you want to build the UI in Morphic
or MVC.


According to this ticket Nebraska is broken in recent Etoys releases
https://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7745 (I don't know about its state in
mainstream Squeak images, so you may prefer to go to an older Squeak,
or use Socket directly as Herbert suggested.)

Hope that helps, David
